Kathleen, Joseph J. Cripe was the son of John B. & Susannah (Ditmer) Cripe. Joseph was born 1826, in Montgomery Co., OH, and died 8 April 1911, in Elkhart County, IN. He married 15 November 1849, in Elkhart County, IN, to Rebecca Coughman, who was born about 1828, in OH, and died 4 February 1907, in Elkhart County, IN. Joseph is buried in Clinton Union cemetery, where I believe Rebecca is, too, without a stone. I have a friend who descends from Hannah (Cripe) Bowman, too. Also, a fellow genealogist, David Cripe, is the grandson of David Cripe, brother to Hannah Bowman.
